Via the New York Times' political blog, the Caucus, we find out this week's Congressional recess will surely not be a break from the Iraq war debate, or er... lack of debate. Americans Against Escalation in Iraq, a multi-million dollar coalition, consisting of Moveon.org, the Center for American Progress, and other anti-war groups, doesn't plan to allow Congressmen and women to escape from this important issue for even a second. The group has put together 300 events across the country, "an exhaustive schedule of town-hall-style meetings and public appearances." The list of events has been sent to local supporters in hopes they will attend and "in an e-mail alert, the group also urged activists to 'pummel' lawmakers with phone calls." Happy Recess!
